ADC's ion chambers are designed for precise, low noise x-ray measurement. The electrodes are constructed of nickel plated copper on fiberglass supports, all housed within a nickel plated aluminum frame. Each electrode is connected to an SHV connector. ¼" push to connect style fittings comprises the gas connections.


The system can be configured for air, vacuum, or ultra high vacuum operation through one of three interfaces. The air system stands alone mounted to the system table. The vacuum configuration interfaces through a NW40 style bulkhead fitting. The UHV version replaces the Kapton windows with beryllium windows and interfaces through a tapped DN63 CF flange.


One unique feature of ADC's precision ion chambers is the incorporation of a split collector plate. The electrode is split in a saw tooth configuration with a height of approximately 10mm that, when the differential current is computed, allows the use as a beam position monitor.
